Miki Yoshikawa will publish a one-shot crossover between her Yankee-kun to Megane-chan and Yamadakun to Nananin no Majo series in the January issue of Kodansha's Magazine Special on December 20. The tentatively titled "Megane-chan to Nananin no Majo" manga will have 18 pages, including a color opening page. In addition, characters from both manga will adorn the cover of the January issue, and Kodansha will offer exclusive goods to all readers.
The January issue is also publishing 76 four-panel manga by 76 creators from not only Magazine Special, but also Weekly Shonen Magazine and Bessatsu Shonen Magazine.
In the school comedy story of Yankee-kun to Megane-chan, the eyeglasses-wearing, overachieving class representative Hana "Megane-chan" Adachi goes all out to drag the delinquent Daichi "Yankee-kun" Shinagawa into their high school's social circles and activities. Daichi learns that Hana was secretly a former delinquent herself, and that is why she tries so hard to reform Daichi. Yoshikawa drew the manga from 2006 to 2011, and the manga inspired a live-action television series in 2010.
The story of Yoshikawa's current Yamadakun to Nananin no Majo manga begins when Yamada, the high school's worst problem child, bumps into the beautiful honor student Shiraishi on the stairs, and their lips touch as they fall. When they regain their wits, they realize that they have swapped bodies. As time progresses, the two realize that this is not the only mysterious happening in the school. The manga began last year, and a live-action adaptation aired this past summer.
